(Two posts today and another late yesterday. Please scroll down)
What prompted the exchange from which the title of this post comes? The teacher's "fact of the day" that Romney was a bully in high school.
More from the exchange between a teacher and a student in a social studies classroom in North Carolina on Monday, May 14, 2012:
...The back and forth continued and the most strident of the two students reminded his teacher that President Bush was constantly treated to negative statements about him while he was in office: “Whenever Bush was president, everybody talked sh-t about him.”More HERE, including an audio of the entire exchange.
To which the teacher responded: “Because he was sh-tty.”
The social studies educator went on for a full minute with more ranting, saying that people were arrested for saying derogatory things about President Bush. The student correctly reminded the teacher that opinions are protected, but you cannot be arrested unless you threaten the president.
